Target Clearance Thread XXIV

Lucky you.  Not one store in my area still has this in stock and I would totally buy it at $17.98.


Well I don't plan on going to that Target anytime soon, but should I be, I'll send you a DM if you want about shipping it.

I bought JW-evo for 17.98 and thought it was worth the price. I love Jurassic Park and the game is addictive.

I'm sure this isn't too novel but had a Target yesterday show two different prices for the same game.

WWE 2k18 switch rang up $8.98 and $20.98 (in the same store).

There aren't two versions of it right?

wtf. brickseek shows oos at all stores for sonic forces, and "N. A." as the price. anybody know what that means? I held a copy of this game in my hand at my local store earlier today, but i (apparently foolishly) didn't price check it.

edit:also thanks alex for posting.

In my experience this usually means that the item has been removed from the system but there are some "on hand" stock still listed.

Could you message me as well? The game is sold out in my area, but I definitely want to try it out. Thanks!

N.A. means they took it out of their system, so if you do find it, whatever sticker price it had is what they're going to charge you. OR if you get an employee who knows how to work their scanner, they'll charge you the last lowest price it had before being taken out of the system.

buying a game just because it skyrockets in value later really gets people off around here.

I get excited when I find something on steep clearance with frontloaded value; something expensive that I needed or was already considering buying at its regular price. Those are the best finds.

Even something as small as when I go to Target to buy Kickstarts, they are on sale for $.99 and then there happens to be a 25% off cartwheel stacked on top of it too.


Agreed. Like my $150 beats for $50. Or a $150 Fitbit for $50. Love those kinda deals.

Same here, this game has been evading me since it hit 17.98  :-(

Would love a PS4 copy of Jurassic World Evolution, but no store around me has it...

I appreciate the offer, though I'm probably just going to wait it out and see if another store near me drops it to around $20.

Did all of you still want a copy of the game? There's a local Target not too far from where I work that's supposed to have a bunch of them in stock for $18. I have a prior commitment tonight, but I can check for you after work tomorrow if you'd like. Let me know either in this thread or via PM. Thanks!

You don't want to know how many factory sealed Target clearance games that I have. One night, I was awakened by the sound of them crashing onto the floor when the stack gave way.

I used to buy games all of the time and they would just sit.  I don't do that anymore, not sure what clicked, but I buy to play and then usually part with them.  Anti backlog.

the massive backlog is a very common problem around here. too driven by the thrill of the deal, realistic concerns over having time to play come secondary.

i like to call it "CAG-plague"...... who do i talk to about a trademark there?

If the game costs between $5 and $10, I typically won't think long about buying if it's one that I'm even moderately interested in. $15 is now my cap for games new or used. Anything that costs more than that is too much. And I have been playing down my backlog lately, but I'm starting with PS3 and Steam games. I don't expect to get to the current gen games that aren't already installed on my PS4 or Xbox One for months.

Me on the other hand, I check this thread each time it's bumped just to make sure I'm not missing out on someone posting a new clearance game.

I used to be that way. Ten years later and I have hundreds of new/sealed games going back multiple console generations. $10 here and there x100 adds up. Realizing how much I wasted that's sitting around in my attic was a wake up call a few years ago.

I'm getting there, and I'll probably be there sooner than you might think. I've been playing video games since I was 3, and I'll be 40 next Thursday. My goal is to seriously reduce the number of games that I buy at that point. Why age 40? Why not? I won't lie and say I won't buy games anymore, but I am planning to allot myself a very small gaming budget each month and stick to it no matter what. That means using Bing Rewards and gift cards to fund the majority of my purchases from that point on. But the Target clearance shelf will still be the first place that I stop by when I head into that store.

Can we start a "Recovering video game purchasing addicts with ridiculous backlog" discussion group in the non-deals section?  I have been playing games since I was 3 when I remember playing night stalker on the intellivision.  We didn't have a ton of money so there were always games I wanted but couldn't afford. Now, games are so cheap I would go crazy buying them if I think I may even feel the smallest bit of regret for not picking them up when I saw them cheap. I've slowed down a lot lately but I have so many Wii games I will never play mostly because they were 3 dollars or less.

 I also started my video game addiction at the young age of 3 years old. I was a pretty lucky kid and my parents bought me a lot of games and consoles over the years from the NES all the way to the PS2 before I had to start buying them myself. Losing GCU has slowed me down a bit, but I can't say I am buying games at a pace that isn't continuing to clog my backlog up. This year alone I've probably bought at least a dozen games already.

On my previous site I did two "special events" called Backlog Quest where I committed myself to being able to publish a game review every day for a month. My goal being to finally play and get rid of some of my backlog. Plowed through about 60 games while doing so. 

Made very little dent in the backlog.

Exactly! It's all about the thrill of the deal and I'll buy just about any game for $10 or less. I also long for the days you could go into just about any flea market, garage sale, thrift shop, etc. and find awesome deals on great (now considered retro) games. With the internet and the popularity of video games exploding into what it is today it's so rare to come across amazing deals anymore. I just picked up a copy of Typing of the Dead and a Dreamcast Keyboard, both complete for $35, which is the best find I've had in quite some time.

I also used to buy almost every game that I saw that was under $5 unless it was a horrible game during the PS2/GameCube/XBox generation of consoles and for much of last generation. It was difficult not to when so many stores like Sears, Kmart, TRU and Circuit City all had regular clearance deals. I also agree it was about the thrill of finding the games. It was a lot of fun to go into a store with your printed list, find a game tagged for $49.99 and know it would scan for a few dollars. I didn't have time to play every game and ended up not finishing most of them. Now I only buy games I really want and try to finish every new game I buy.
